    Share this: I’m a high school sophomore who hated learning from home. But right now remote is the better option. I’m a sophomore at Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn. I learned remotely all last year and hated it. Still, I made the best of the situation by keeping my camera on and “going to class” every day. It wasn’t how I had expected to begin high school, and it took a toll on my mental health. This past fall, I was super happy to resume in-person learning and got right into the swing of classes and clubs. I met people whom I had only known as boxes on a screen, and I had the opportunity to take more advanced courses, which quelled some of my boredom in school.

    CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) — Officials from a Virginia high school said two football players were stabbed while they tried to protect their coach from the father of another player. Chesterfield police charged 46-year-old Turon M. Savoy with two counts of malicious wounding in the incident. The two players from Life Christian Academy in Chester had puncture and laceration wounds to their face and chest. Life Christian officials said a sophomore on the football team was dismissed from practice as a disciplinary measure but the teen later returned with Savoy and attempted to assault the coach. Police said the teens intervened and were stabbed repeatedly by Savoy. The sophomore was dismissed from the school. It’s unclear whether Savoy has an attorney. A map of the area is below.
